If UConn wins this whole thing, is it the greatest March run ever?



No. That distinctiuon belongs to their women's team. They are the best ever at anything basketball related. NBA, NCA men? Meh. Don't you watch ESPN and listen to Geno?

The question should actually be: "why do people care about stupid ass March Madness and a playoff format that supports anything but the best teams playing each other"

Terrible concept.

The best thing about the NCAA Tournament is also the worst thing about the NCAA Tournament.

Great concepts: Upsets, remote heroes and "Cinderella" stories

Bad concepts: Wrecks remarkable seasons and careers if they get beat before they should have

Still a ton of fun to follow, but it's too bad we no longer enjoy the voyage, only the destination

I enjoy the journey. Enjoyed it with ya on opening Thursday in that tomb of a bar and enjoyed everything this past friday except the set up at Cornerstone and the fact they lost.

Worth it me that I see people I like to hang with at least once or twice a year for the tourney.

It's a fucking money drain though. God damn pools and squares and 6-school bullshit.

;-) ;) :wink:
